Cartier has modernised and reinvented the heritage “mystery clock” by creating new watches that take the mastery of mystery to new heights. Following the first Mysterious Hour and Mysterious Double Tourbillon models, the Astromysterieux achieves a new feat by combining the central rotation of an escapement with the axis of the hands. The architecture of the 9462 MC calibre is every bit as ethereal in the organisation of its central axis, comprising the escapement, balance-wheel, gear train and barrel. Its elongated shape representing the minute hand enables it to complete a full turn of the dial in one hour. The visible trajectory of the movement resembles the path of a heavenly body orbiting in space.
